Described as the offspring of Quilt Jams, in this album, Elsa Hewitt takes a minimal approach to a soulful, psychedelic and high-energy sound, staying close to certain themes throughout, whilst giving each track both a unique character and equal weight within the collection.

Track Name: That Thing
How do you think
When you've got that thing around your head?
How do you think?

You were saved by me once
Track Name: Pastel
Well you better get better
Ohh no
Still holding on
Well you're gonna be better
Think you're so clever
Still holding on

Each time I don't leave
In time I can be
In love
Track Name: Blood Orange
Like the leaves of the trees
On the ground they fall asleep
Once a year they get lean
Because they are not evergreen
Just like me just like me just like me

I'm going home
We're going to be reborn
I'm going home
We're going to be reborn

Like the birds in the wild
Once a year we fly for miles
In the bright morning light
When the sky is still in sight
Traffic fumes they consume
All the gold and all the blue

I'm going home
We're going to be reborn
We're going home
We're going to be reborn
Track Name: The Edge
Just when you think you've seen it all
Here is a test again
Released in the swing and in the sway
Released in the sway
You get what you give
And you get what you're given...

Inspector Dust Speck
Somewhere near Rome
Crossing thousands of paths per week
Unable to speak
She sees many stark contrasts in faces
Contents of spaces
And rooms in places
She sees many scenes that get repeated
Time after time
Turning over cells all the while
Track Name: Pop Tuna
you've got to turn it on its head
for it to even start making sense
Track Name: Mermaid
As it fizzes in your brain
You tell yourself never again
Lay the groundwork making friends
I won't be on my own again
Fate is thrown in all directions
Not one speck of the stress you create
Has any real meaning
Has any real meaning

Shaking hands with a mermaid siren thing...
Ready to learn the notes she can sing
You can't control how they make you feel
But can control how you act upon that
She could sense my turbulence
Her words were clean and strong
Unlike mine...
No-one will ever know
What her life's really like
She has no need to prove
No need to prove herself
To anyone
